The success of Doctor Who has helped BBC Worldwide achieve record profits of around £140 million.

Director General Mark Thompson released the figure at a conference at Chatham House in London, ahead of the publication of the annual report in July. Last year the commercial arm of the BBC made £103 million.

Doctor Who is now sold to more than 50 territories, has sold over 3.3 million DVD's and in 2009 sold more than 7 million action figures.
